Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Tacoma 4-cyl

While traveling on the bruckner by-pass I executed a 90 degree turn to a side road. When I turned the truck came to a sudden stop. I inspected the truck and found both rear springs broken and the rear axle shifted to the right jamming the tire into the wheel well. The truck was empty and not used as a hauling vechiele. The manufacturer replaced the springs. The original springs were clearly defective and could of resulted in a major accident if they had failed on the main highway.
